We’ve chosen The Island by Victoria Hislop a classic and perfect for the holiday and the sort of book you can read time and again::

‘Passionately engaged with its subject . . . meticulously researched’ The Sunday Times

‘Hislop carefully evokes the lives of Cretans between the wars and during German occupation, but most commendable is her compassionate portrayal of the outcasts’ Guardian

‘Vivid, moving and absorbing’ Observer

Let’s see what we think!
